I find myself feeling totally uninspired. This is quite a contradiction as I am writing this because of a sudden inspiration to tell the world about how uninspired I am. (Weird)
Anyway, years ago, it was easy to put together a paragraph, a page, or a chapter. Now it’s difficult to even string two words together without having to use a dictionary. Inspiration used to flow from my fingertips onto paper, later to a keyboard where words were given life – like water – to anyone who would willingly partake of its goodness. I loved to write words describing my life and every intricate detail – it was juicy.
I don’t know if it’s the dis-ease that I have now which makes me mundane, dull, lackluster and oddly droll, but I want more. I want my old life back. I want laughter and dancing. I want poetry and fiction.
I want to feel life but how do I do this? How do I get my groove back?

When I get like this, I often find I just have to wait and do interesting things with my life. Then the inspiration comes pouring back. Usually my work gets stale when I do. Beyond that, I find that reading something completely new or or working in a new medium or genre gets my creativity jumpstarted. I might not create anything too great in that new genre, but it is enough to get me unstuck.

I just told my husband that I would try reading a different genre of book. Lately, I’ve been reading a lot of science fiction. Maybe I should try romance. I hope it gives me the nudge I need. If not, I’ll try painting or photography again. Thank you!
